- Free -

Birds and sky,


I want to fly like them, 
no tension, no woes, 

just me
with my wings and the sky

- Callan ... thirteen today! -

Precious child ...

It seems like yesterday that I held you in my arms for the first time.

You were amazing, so perfect and beautiful!
The awe has never worn off, each day has brought more ...

.... more amazement in the unfolding gift of who you are
a loving, special, wise soul.

You are a beautiful person who brightens the darkness of all those who feel your love ....

You are enough ..... 
a magnificent unique creation of the Universe.

You are a light shining brightly,
brilliant and wonderful.

Creator's gift!

--- Gifts from the garden ---

These beautiful apricots are the second harvest from our very young tree in the vegetable garden. 

How generous!

We were so excited as they were so perfect and sweet, and of course we had enough to share with the birds...

Thank you little tree!

- Trees -

Pine forest - Kaapschehoop

The whole life of these trees is to serve.
With their leaves, flowers, fruit,
branches, roots, shade, fragrance,
sap, bark, wood and finally
even their ashes and coal.
They exist for the purpose 
of others.
- Srimad Bhagavatam

- Summer -

Then followed that beautiful season ..... Summer ........

Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;

and the landscape lay as if new
created in all the freshness
of childhood.

October flush

How did the rose ever open its heart and give this world all its beauty? It felt the encouragement of Light against its Being. --- Hafiz

Dandelion Thinking ...

I took this photo a few days ago ...  it reminded me of this beautiful poem -

Dandelion Thinking
- Monica Cromhout - 

don't care
that nobody cares
to cultivate dandelions.

 don't know
that everyone knows -
they grow everywhere.
Underfoot. In cracks.

The smell of Spring ...!

Don't you love the smell of Spring? I can smell it coming each year - it makes me come alive - both inside and outside!

I thaw my winter bones and spring into creativity.

... Earth laughs in flowers ...

These treasures appear in my garden each year ...

In the pond ... 


Covering the pergola ... 

I looooove Spring - both inside and outside......!
